SUMMER INSTITUTE FOR TEACHERS OF FRENCH
Welcome ACTFL Participants!
University of Wisconsin-Madison Professional French Masters Program student Bailey Hacker, a high school French teacher in Indiana, talks about her experience in the new PFMP Summer Institute for Teachers.
The Summer Institute is a hybrid master’s program that allows working French teachers to do a master’s degree in twenty-five months, combining two short summer sessions in the Institute at Madison with online coursework during the year and a professional internship in the French-speaking world in a variety of professional settings–from language schools to environmental NGOs to music and film festivals.
Teachers in the Summer Institute gain access to:
- Graduate-level training in French language and francophone cultures,
- cutting-edge research and practice in teaching and second-language pedagogy,
- unique skill development and experience in strategic communication, stakeholder relations, branding and marketing—to help you promote your French language program in your school, community and with your own alumni.
